Dutch, Can You Spare a Domain Name?

by , Nov 21, 2008 | 8:02 am

Back in October, Dan blogged about Dutch Boyd purchasing Steve Hall’s domain (www.pokerfolio.com) that had expired while Hall took a hiatus after the WSOP, relegating him to a new domain with much smaller traffic. I commented that Dutch Boyd on NWP Radio, when questioned about the “takeover”, that he would give the domain back to Hall for the price he paid for it ($60).

Fast forward to earlier today, when Allen “Chainsaw” Kessler posted on 2+2 that Hall still has not gotten his domain name back from Boyd. So is Dutch Boyd playing hardball, or is he so wrapped up in his battle with Pokerhost that he’s forgotten all about the photographer and his humble web home? A poker community is watching…

Here’s the clip from the Neverwin guys talking with Dutch about the domain:

    Hey, for what it’s worth … Dutch did offer to give Steve his domain name back for the same $60 he paid for it. I have a feeling Steve just hasn’t shelled out the money.

    I actually offered to buy it back for Steve … but he didn’t like my “conditions” — which involved being my bitch and taking tons of photos for Pokerati while also walking my dog.

    I feel like it’s sorta up to Steve at this point. If Dutch is willing to deal fairly here, and I really don’t see why he wouldn’t be, Steve needs to make the next move and work it out with Dutch.

    I just don’t go around collecting phone numbers so I was just waiting
    to see Dutch at the upcoming Bellagio.

    I always blamed the old server not Dutch for the inconvenience.

    Nice to hear the Neverwin guys comments though.

    “Tripod” probably isn’t that bad of a nickname to have attached to you.
